Climate warning

UK insist on the use of bee-killing pesticide.

The United Kingdom authorities has continued the use of neonicotinotid pesticide Cruiser SB, a pesticide that kills bees. This comes even after the pesticide was banned by the European Union, a call from the scientists that the UK government has ignored. Considering the adverse effects caused by the pesticide and the warning from farmers and scientists in UK, the authorities must sought to recall the use of all neonicotinotid products for the sake of bees and for the environment.

      Bees are of very many benefits amongst them being honey production and cross pollination and thus should be protected from any possible hazards

        But why should they even insist on such harmful practices? They should be condemned

          @winnie_nguru Instead we should embrace safe beekeeping practices.

              The UK government is disregarding significant scientific evidence highlighting the adverse effects of neonicotinoids on bees and other pollinators.

                It's disheartening to see the UK insisting on the use of these chemicals despite strong evidence of their harmful effects!

                            Bees play a vital part in our planet and should not be endangered as this endangers our livelihoods as well. Say no to this!
